roller guides
The installation could be done during counter-
weight frame or car frame assembling, or also
afterwards if the elevator is to be modernised.
NO gap
With counterweight:
Check from the layout drawing whether counter-
weight shift has been used. If used, check that the
counterweight frame is correctly assembled. Cover

With car roller guides:


The first steps are balancing and safety gear
adjustment - see chapter 3 balancing of elevator
cars provided with factory adjusted roller guides.

Check the position of the slider


Make sure that the plastic slider firmly touch-
es the guide rail if the car or counterweight is Base

3 Balancing of elevator cars provided with factory adjusted


roller guides
3.1 General
If the elevator car is not balanced, the sliding and
roller guide shoes are subject to excessive load.
This leads to rapid wear of the guide shoes and in
case of roller guide shoes to quaky running, which
can be felt in the car. Therefore all cars must be
balanced independent of speed and travelling
height.

Accurate balancing can be carried out first after


the car is fully installed and suspended by the
ropes.

The removable clamps and sliders are used to ease


the balancing and installation.

3.2 Balancing

Before the balancing is done the roller guides must


be aligned using the door lines as reference line:

Drive the car to a suitable working height near


the lowest floor level

Adjust the position of the roller guides so that


the gap between the car door and the landing
door is equal at top, bottom, left and right
(refer to chapter 2.1 and 2.2).
check also that the safety gear can still be
adjusted side ways.

Do not try to untwist the car frame with


the roller guides. If untwisting is required,
then loosen the top fixing between car and
the frame, force the frame to right position
and tighten the fixings.
